​What You Should Look For In A Thermal Imaging Camera for Leak Detection

Use - Will you be using this for your own home inspection use or will you be inspecting multiple homes and/or commercial buildings as part of your business? An entry level thermal camera such as the FLIR C3 is good choice as it is easy to use, small, and relatively inexpensive. For commercial use the FLIR E60 is going to be a much better choice as you will need to be able to send images back to the office/insurance company from onsite many times and will need the extra features and resolution this camera offers.

Price - Like above your budget will also play a big role in what thermal camera is best. If you are looking for the absolutely cheapest solution the Seek Compact, and FLIR ONE are imagers that connect to your Iphone or Android device which can be a very reasonable solution
